Bill of Rights in Action: Due Process of Law


Published 1971


An open-ended film in which lawyers present their arguments concerning the due process of law clause of the fifth amendment during a hearing to reinstate a student who has been summarily suspended after an act of violence at a campus demonstration. Explains that the due process of law is, by its very nature, time consuming, whereas the need to avoid violence and anarchy is often immediate. Questions if there are times when due process should give way to summary punishment in violation of the Fifth Amendment. For more on director Bernard Wilets, visit http://www.afana.org/wilets.htm
